These CSI projects are a great way to capture your students’ interest in math.
This activity is also great to use as a fun Halloween math activity.
This activity has a short story at the start which sets up your class for an adventure where they have to find out which of the creatures is the skeleton bride’s forgotten fiancé. Also included with this resource is a video – please check it out before showing it to your class to judge whether it is appropriate for them. It can be used as a video hook to get your students interested in the math challenge.

Included in this activity you will find:
Four math clues which your students will need to solve in order to uncover who the skeleton bride’s fiancé is. The clues are:
Hidden Message: Students use their basic facts, mainly multiplication, in order
to uncover a hidden message left by the witch.
Basic cardinal directions and long addition: Students map the witch’s flight
Decimal addition – Students figure the weight of the ingredients in magic vials.
Fractions – Students work out how much pizza each creature ate.
After the students have found out which creature is the skeleton bride’s fiancé they can complete the last activity to find out which room is the witch’s spell room. To make this activity shorter you don’t have to include this sheet.
Two early finisher activities are also included. Keep these on hand to give to your students who finish early. One of the extra activities is a short writing activity and the other is a haunted house multiplication maze.
